Sand Bug

So the Associated Foods Art Department is starting up the creative blog again, and they were nice enough to let me still contribute even though I don't work there anymore. The first topic was "Some sort of creature" and since I have been out of the drawing loop for a while, I had a hard time thinking of what to do. I watched Raiders of the Lost Ark while I thought about what to draw, and this is what I came up with. Not the best coloring job I have ever done, but I still like the bug itself.

Portrait of a Klingon

This is one I did for our department blog. The theme was Star Trek, and the first thing I came up with was making someone I work with look like a Klingon... so here he is, the boss of my boss in Klingon form. If I am filing for unemployment tomorrow you know why.

The Games We Play

I have to admit I got this idea from Kevin's blog about Valkyria Chronicles. I loved his rendition of such a classic, and thought I would do my own based on one of my favorite games of all time. I took one of Obama's "Hope" posters, which I still say look way to much like some communistic propaganda posters I have seen in the past, and turned it into someone we can all get behind, dear ol' Sack Boy. For any of you who haven't played this game, you are seriously missing out. There are hours upon hours of fun that come with it. Seriously, check it out.

Fall Out 3 is another game that I just finished, and honestly can't wait to play again. It has an amazing atmoshere, a fun and engaging story and tons of possibilities as you choose whether to be good or bad in this nuclear wasteland that was once D.C.
There are some amazing places to visit and fun side quests to keep you busy for a very long time. I would suggest it heavily but I do warn against bad language and a lot gore.

I am also currently playing Far Cry 2, which is really fun with a HUGE open world, but the game play can get a little old sometimes. I still love it though and recommend it with the same warnings as Fall Out. I also played Resistance 2 but had a hard time getting in to it. It didn't feel like they did much to make the sequel bigger and better, and I didn't feel as sucked in to the story as I was in the first. I also recently finished The Force Unleashed and I loved it. It's definitely something that only Star Wars Geeks like myself will fully enjoy, but I still think it is fun for anyone who likes the Saga.

Up next for me is Mirror's Edge and Killzone. What are you guys playing?

Twilight- the movie

That's right boys and girls, I was able to see Twilight last night at the Gateway. Sure, I had to get my tickets a few weeks ago, and even then they only had good seats in one of the 2:30 am showings (I am now at work and have been up since one... thanks Full throttle) but it was definitely worth it. I will try to give you all my best review without spoiling anything. No worries, I hate it when people ruin movies for me, so I wouldn't do that, not that I am going to give away any plot spoilers to anyone who has read the book. When it comes to that I can say they did a great job of keeping all the main plot points intact. Yes, they had to cut some of it down, and they meshed some parts together into one, but I didn't feel like I was being cheated at all. They really did a great job of putting an entire book into a two hour movie. I thought all the characters were really well cast, even Bella who I was not so sure about. I honestly think that any fan of the books will enjoy the movie a lot if they go in to it knowing that it's going to have spots taken out entirely, and that there are going to be some changes. They still kept very true the heart of the story, and did a really great job of visualizing such a great book. Enjoy!

Working as a Graphic Designer

Each week I have to make artwork based on a theme for our ads, and even though it's not my favorite kind of art to do, I still have done a few that I really liked and thought I would post on here.
